The race for who will be elected occupant of the Planalto Palace in 2022 is already on the street. This week, on the same day, Jair Bolsonaro and Sergio Moro, who aspire to the presidential seat, put their political platforms out on the street.
Bolsonaro, who had been without a party for two years, confirmed his affiliation with the PL, party of Valdemar da Costa Neto, an experienced politician with years on the road and whose résumé includes a conviction in the monthly allowance scandal. In a bold move, the president dressed for the electoral war in the clothes and weapons of the Centrão: he paved the way for a slate headed by him in the PL with a deputy from Progressistas, an acronym that today forms the backbone of political support for your government.
Sergio Moro, the former Lava Jato judge who, on numerous occasions, said he was not going into politics, spoke with pomp and circumstance at a political event in Brasília. He said no to the “mensalão” and the “split”, but made it clear that he intends to run in the lane of the right-wing voter, trying to steal votes from Bolsonaro.
For now, Moro appears with a level of 8% of voting intentions in polling intentions. If he is far from Lula — who continues to lead the presidential race in all scenarios — and from Bolsonaro, the former judge shows that he can be a competitive name for the so-called “third way”.
Before that, he knows that he will have a long journey, which starts with becoming, in fact, a candidate. Those who have been with Moro in the last few days report concern about the former judge’s difficulties in demonstrating his skills and ability to improvise. Moro knows he still needs to prepare better for the possible clash.
Moro, by the way, was the “Picture of the Week” of the new episode of the Brasília Timetable, which opened a new season this Friday (12). The new framework tells the reasons that led to the choice of the personality that moved the week and politics.
